Risks Worth Taking, presented by Rev. Eric Banner, Assistant Minister, Sunday, March 5, 2017


Theologian Sharon Welch wrote a book years ago titled, “A Feminist Ethic of Risk.” In it, she suggests that we avoid risk because we’ve been taught that failure or unintended consequences are to be avoid, almost above all else. But much of how the world will turn out is unknowable. Choosing to avoid risk means not avoiding the future, and avoiding all surprises, even the ones that delight. Some risks are just worth taking.
